Fall Arrest Systems
Atlas safety provides rentals for fall arrest systems. Personal fall arrest systems are an OSHA requirement when workers are exposed to vertical drops of 6 feet or more. Personal fall arrest systems are used to stop employee falls from a walking-working surface. Fall arrest systems of this type include a body harness, anchorage, and connector. The means of connection may include a lanyard, deceleration device, lifeline, or a suitable combination of these.
Atlas rents tripods for confined space entry and rescue. Tripods are versatile, lightweight, and typically built from high-strength alloy aluminum, designed to keep workers safe while entering, escaping, and working within an enclosed space.
Atlas rents two types of winches. With both types, the winch operator is in constant contact with the entrant below. A Materials Winch can be used to lift and lower materials in and out of confined spaces, but may not be used for personnel. A Personnel Winch is used to facilitate non-entry rescue and entry rescue from confined spaces.
Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) are an alternative to a shock-absorbing lanyard. Self-retracting lifelines require less than 2 ft. to arrest free falls. With this short activation and overall arresting distance, self-retracting lifelines reduce the risk of hitting the ground or any obstructions at a lower level.
Manhole guardrails that Atlas rents are designed to prevent people from falling into an open manhole. Each features collapsible, steel frame construction and heavy-duty safety chains.
For safety, the rail accommodates signs, flags or lights, and for convenience, it can also be used with a guardrail tent, umbrellas or winch.
